Egypt, Ethanol, Salt and Cellulosic treasure on #3622

You don’t have to be from rural America to know the snow impacted your life this week. The weather this time of year doesn’t have much, if any, affect on the markets. But there is one region’s activities that is affecting some of the markets this week.

The unrest in Egypt unrest pushes oil prices higher and puts ethanol producers on edge.

Also, a report from USDA on new dietary guidelines. The Department is suggesting we could all get up off the couch and try putting less salt in our food.

And a next-generation ethanol producer converts “one man’s trash into a cellulosic treasure.”

We’ll have those stories and market analysis with Elaine Kub.

Death Tax, Food Safety and Foreign Demand

Plenty to discuss this week without out factoring in the markets.

Farm groups call on Congress to bury The Death Tax once and for all. Plus, sweeping food safety reforms granted to federal authorities hit a snag.

And, robust foreign demand keeps commodity prices at unseasonably high levels.

We’ll have those stories and market analysis with Elaine Kub.

Check your local listings and we’ll see on the air for Market To Market.
